Waddington Surgery - Temporary Closure

In order to facilitate as many Covid-19 vaccines for patients in and around our area as possible, we have temporarily converted our Waddington Surgery into a Covid-19 vaccine site. Unfortunately this means that normal facilities of our Waddington site have been suspended for the forseeable future. We are encouraging patients to contact us first on 01522 811411, and attend our Navenby surgery for appointments and collections when possible. Our front post box at Waddington is still being checked on a daily basis, so please feel free to leave prescription requests, completed registration forms and other letters to us in there as normal. We will resume normal service as soon as we can but in the mean time, thank you very much for your patience and understanding. 

FLU VACCINATIONS

We now have our flu vaccinations in stock. At present we are able to offer appointments to all patients over 50 years old, and patients who fit the NHS high risk categories. Please contact reception to see if you are eligible.

Zero Tolerance

We operate a Zero Tolerance Policy with regard to abuse or violence towards our staff. We reserve the right to remove abusive or violent patients from the Practice List.

Test Results

Please note that when you have had tests done, such as X-rays or blood tests, you should not assume that “no news is good news”. Please contact us for the results after 11.00 am each day.

The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.

Urine Samples 

If you believe you have a urinary tract infection, or need to provide a urine sample for any other reason, please discuss this with a medical professional or provide an accompanying symptom sheet before handing any samples to reception
 
Please be aware that we are unable to collect or test urine samples after 12:30 on a Friday afternoon. This is because hospital collections cut off at 12:30, meaning that any samples received after that time would stay at the surgery over the weekend, and would no longer be considered viable for testing.

All urine samples must be within a sterile container, provided by the surgery or another healthcare organisation.
